Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered 1890s American history: political events and social movements. I gave her notes on specific terms, and she followed along. She likes to hear about the significance of these historical events and people. She does a great job following along!"
"We worked on developing an outline for the student's essay on international and internal immigration in the United States. We reviewed assigned documents that will be utilized to support a thesis statement. She also created a thesis statement for her paper. During our session we analyzed the impact of internal and international immigration during the late 19th early 20th centuries. We previewed some key ideas of the time period using a website during the final 20 minutes. She continues to show improvement when it comes to analyzing historical documents. She earned an A- in her history class for the semester."
"In today's lesson with the student, we covered the period 1865-1890, approximately. We reviewed the Reconstruction period, the settlement of the American West, the second Industrial Revolution in the United States, the creation of the labor and Grange movements and the increasing diversity and complexity of American culture. I gave him an overview, did comprehension check questions. I then gave him readings from the A.P. U.S. history book and had him answer questions from it."
